Stacy grew up in Indiana, studied sociology and public relations at Ball State University and learned about the interrelatedness of oppression through women’s studies courses in graduate school at Minnesota State at Mankato. After moving to Madison, WI in 2004, she was blessed with amazing work experiences as a field coordinator for MoveOn.org, an administrator for the Wisconsin Women’s Network, and the Youth and Campus Ministry Coordinator for the First Unitarian Society of Madison.
In 2006, the American Civil Liberties Union of Wisconsin hired her as a community organizer and made her their Communications Director just before the tumultuous Capitol Occupation of 2011. In 2013 she became the Communications Director for Midwest Environmental Advocates, a citizen-focused, environmental law center that works to protect our clean water, air and land for this generation and the next.
Everything she knows about media relations, she learned at the ACLU. Everything she knows about people-centered, nonprofit marketing, she learned at MEA. Everything she knows about cooking, she learned from her mother and everything she knows about knitting, she learned from the group she’s stitched with for over 10 years. The name “Unstuck” came from her year of daily yoga in 2015 in which she got ready to turn 40 and start helping herself and others tell our truths to finally, finally connect with each other.
